The first semi-automatic cable blowing machine with installation assistant and electronic blowing data recorder.
The new IntelliJet is a pioneering, intelligent cable blowing system that facilitates the laying of fibre optic cables for the machine operators and improves installation quality.
Cable layers as well as customers benefit from these improvements.
Plumettaz developed a test bench where dynamic friction can be tested in real jetting (blowing) conditions, in order to determine the coefficient of friction (COF) between a cable and duct/micro-duct.
This service is provided to cable and duct manufacturers, chemical companies, as well as other partners and customers.
The latest tests are described in the attached News Letter from Nexans about their CablOmix cable. It was the first time that the COF was measured in a helicoidal duct contained in a Medium Voltage cable.
Lubrication of cable and duct/microduct has a large beneficial effect on cable jetting (blowing), increasing significantly the achievable installation distance.
The Plumett cable Lubricators (patented) are easy to use and result in high efficiency in cable installation
Cable Installation Technology
Paper has been presented by Dr. Willem Griffioen at the IWCS (International Cable Connectivity Symposium) in Charlotte, NC, USA, in November 2013
From Sep 18, 2017 to Sep 20, 2017 : Gotheburg, Sweden
ECOC is the largest European optical communications event and the meeting place for everyone in the fibreoptic communication technology industry.
Highlights we present on our Booth are the IntelliJet, a smart cable blowing machine that controls the pushing force during installation and records the installation process. We also show the new Ultimaz wit electric motor and electronic controls.
